You remember and sometimes miss Susan G. (FK fic still here!) too, of course. You're an FK fan, after all. And you remember how August used to be "Susan's Birthday Month" on FKFic-L, inviting a special flood of stories to show appreciation ... for her! but also, in a way, for each other and our sharing of FK. (She didn't specify Raven stories for her birthday; she just asked for fiction, lots and lots of fiction.)
I know that I could defriend my deceased friends' accounts and duck these annual nudges. But unless it becomes a security risk, I doubt I ever will. I still write Abby's birthday on my physical wall calendar every year, just like my mom's and grandma's. You don't cease existing when you die.
But don't any of you go anywhere for quite a while, yeah?
